In the end I decided to ink my Nymph of the pond which I post of yesterday evening. To complete it I used a 0.5 and a 0.2 ink pens. I put lots of freckles almost everywhere on her because I like them and because, as everyone know, nymph had had them.

I took wide inspiration from the red beautiful girl posted several weeks ago, just little changes here and there to look a little bit like she's asking for something with the look in her eyes and added some doubt: is she good or evil?
Maybe I'll ink it or ink and very soft watercolor pencils or I'll leave it this way... not sure actually.

It is supposed to show Grannie and Wolf going together to pay a visit to Red Riding Hood through the woods... because in the end there was a huge mistake in the children fable: Wolf was a friend to Granny and Red... And it's almost obvious too: why would a normal wolf choose to eat humans when he can eat warm cakes and flavored biscuits?!

Not very long ago I read an article on a web site about an artist who makes awesome portraits with just few pencil marks so I wanted to try. I believe the outcome is not so bad and the technique is very interesting for it makes the subjects portraited so much bright.
As usual, as soon as I complete a long and demanding artwork, I need one or two quick drawings to rest.

Everything has been painted by colored pencils except the sky and the dragon which have been done in watercolor pencils. I used a 0.2 thin ink pen to enhance almost everywhere. I never used an ink pen over a colored pencils drawing before, except maybe a drawing I remember of about 30 years ago which I still like very much. If it was a watercolor painting it would have been a line and wash painting so maybe I can call this technique line and pencils painting.
It looks a lot like an illustration in some book of mine and I dare say I like it very much.
It was a long time indeed since I didn't feel the need to complete and post some artwork I have been working on, with an outcome not so good because of the needless haste. This time I took it easy and I feel much more pleased of the completed drawing.

I wish I had just half of his.

Very much important things I need to remember: the drapery on the princess' skirt looks much better with the light blue mark on the edge suggesting a little spread light, a thin ink pen to make edges or corners or small details gives stronger emphasis to whatever object drawn of.

This drawing has been paint using 0.2, 0.3, 0.5 ink pens.
Sure cheetah are awesome animals! So sad they are on the verge of extinction.
I look forward to see one of them in a safari trip of mine: seeing one in the wilderness must be absolutely wonderful.
